“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote the hymn “Plenty of Room in the Family”. I love these words. “Plenty of room in the family Room for the young and the old Plenty of happiness, plenty of love Plenty of room in the fold.” O how God loves you and me. He loves us so much He gave His beloved Son to die for our sins.
Just as there is plenty of room in God’s family for all of us, there is also plenty of room for every person in the world to sit on God’s lap at the same time. The heart of our Heavenly Father is full of unconditional and compassionate love for every person. God’s arms are open wide to protect and comfort us.
Heavenly Father, I love You. Thank You for adopting me into Your family and for the privilege You have given me to serve Jesus. I pray for every person who is discouraged, lonely or hurting. Please comfort and encourage them as You have done for me so many times. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
